What a Weekend

I didn't write much at all over the weekend. Got an entry ready for a contest and that's about it. Megs and I did head over to Francis's house to clean. Cleaned for five hours and finished three rooms. her step mother came over, saw what we were doing and cleaned the kid's bedroom which was good cause I couldn't have done it. The kitchen about took it out of me. Kudos to my fastidious daughter who didn't make a single face at how gross it was. She did use rubber gloves and took a shower the minute she got home, but she was a gem while there. And she did say while we drove away... "I feel so much better. We did a good thing." I hope so. Will be going back in a week with some household items and do her laundry. She didn't even have toilet paper. Was using coffee filters. She is really bad off with that knee. She lives upstairs. Gah.

Yesterday, I cleaned my own house and decorated for Christmas. All but the tree is done. Dh and I did a little Christmas shopping. A nice day.

Weekly to do list:

Write Infant Heart
Write Daddy Nursery
Check on sources for Mom heart
Get sources for Downsizing
Write Mom Heart
Get sources for infant Salmonella.

And of course, I'd better finish rewriting the second and third chapter of Dash and finish up the rest. I have entered it in several contests and should I get asked for a full I should probably be ready for it. HA! Then onto the new YA my agent wants to see.

Karma is a good thing, Teri. I have a feeling you are going to get yours back big time in 2007.
Love and big hugs to you and the ice princess. I hope Santa is extra special to her this year! :)
xo,
Steph

It breaks my heart to hear about the mother and children. But you and your daughter are wonderful people, and I know those kids appreciate you.

Thanks for reminding us what Christmas season is all about.

I can only imagine how bad it must have been cleaning that house. You're a peach for doing it. A real live saint.

Hugs to you and your daughter for taking on that task.
